Pearl Hair Removal is Hot Stuff!

Sent For Review

At-home hair removers. Do any of them work? Most of the laser-based products won't work for me, as my hair and skin are basically the same color. If you have light skin and dark hair, then you have so many more pro and at-home options. I don't have that many choices. So when one from Pearl crossed my desk, claiming to help people with light hair and skin like me, I was delighted to give it a try.

According to the website, here is how it works:

Pearl Hair Remover

As the Pearl Hair Remover glides across the skin, thermotransmitters radiate heat down into the hair follicle, removing the hair. Continuous slowing of hair growth promotes longer lasting results and does not irritate skin. Unlike waxing that tears off the first layer of the epidermis, the Pearl gently glides across skin and removes hair painlessly and effortlessly. Using the built-in bi-directional optical sensor, the Pearl removes hair in two directions instead of one.  

Pearl Hair Remover

Got that? Here is how you actually use it in a real world situation, with non-advertising words.

Pearl Hair Remover

Before any hair removal can happen, you have to learn how to hold the device in the perfect position and to move it with precise speed, so the filament will heat up properly. There is a red light that guides you along the way so you know when you are doing it correctly. While it sounds easy, those who are more klutzy than not may have issues learning how to do this. However, once you get it, you'll never forget it.

Now that you know how to make the red light glow continuously, you'll notice a weird scent. Yeah. That is your hair burning. See, that is how this works. There is a little wire that becomes really hot when you hold it just right. As you drag it over your skin, it "crystallizes" the hair. This smells a lot like, well, burning hair. Once you have successfully "crystallized" your hair, you'll need to remove the remainder of the bit of hair with help from a little pad of sandpaper than comes with the Pearl. I'm sure it's not called sandpaper, I think they are called "buffer pads" or something snazzy. You gently rub the snazzy buffer pad over your skin and now you are left with not-quite smooth skin! You can apply the body smoothing serum if you prefer.

Pearl Hair Remover

It took me several episodes of Fringe, or time spent watching Fringe, to learn how to use it and a few more episodes to get a leg finished. I ended up using it on my face, because 1.) it's a smaller space to cover and 2.) any stubble on my legs makes my head explode.

The Pearl did remove the hair from my face (the peach-fuzz type). However, it only removed the hair to about 1/16th of an inch. So there is a still a little stubble. While you might be wondering, "what exactly is the point?", I have an answer. I did notice that the hair grew back slower with each use, which is helpful. Slower hair growth is better than faster hair growth. Perhaps with continued use, the hair would eventually stop growing? Maybe? I don't know. It's hard to tell how long it would take to get actual permanent results.

The bottom line: The Pearl Hair Remover comes charged and it's not that hard to use. You won't be left silky smooth, but your hair may grow in more slowly. Try it for yourself for $214.59 (including shipping).

  2. Bought the pearl hair remover at As Seen on TV Canada and I was surprised at how well it worked. Unlike laser or waxing it's painless and also cheaper.

  4. My Pearl arrived the other day and I've used it twice, so it's early days; the following is based on first impressions only:

    I'm not so sure about the Pearl; it seems to burn off the hair without going down to the root much like a hair removal cream I used called 'Palmers' and therefore leaves stubble although perhaps the after buffering helps with that. It misses a lot of hairs even if I go over them again and again. I'm skeptical about the Pearl's claims to weaken, destroy or disable the hair follicle and it being an effective replacement for clinical laser hair removal as the infomercials would have you believe. I fear I've been scammed/taken in by infomercial seduction; you'll notice how on the infomercials it shows the Pearl going over legs that already have their hair removed! If I decide to keep the Pearl I wouldn't be using it as a replacement for epilation or tweezing, but in conjunction. Maybe I'm being too hard on the Pearl; it did remove some of my unwanted hair; it's just not as whiz-bang as the infomercials would have you believe (surprise surprise). Only time will tell....

    1. In the review, it stated that it doesn't remove hair from the root, but instead, it burns it off, damaging the follicle....

  7. Those of you saying its great an all Know the Pearl is Rubbish, looks like to me you guys are working for there company's to sell dodgy products & sell it for $300 when it should be no more $20.

    1. It only burns the hair off, it definitely doesn't leave a smooth surface!

    2. It's True It's Worthless. They Still owe me the Refund Since October the Last Year. I'm taking them to my Lawyer.

    1. OMG. It's $400? I saw the infomercial on tv aswell and have been trying to do some research to determine whether to purchase it or not. After reading the reviews, I think not.
      Glad I read this. (I'm from NZ too)

  14. for $300 dollars forget its crap trust me i have used it

  15. Just used mine and like everyone else am disappointed, I bought a buffer style system a couple of years ago($30) and basically it is the buffer that gives you silky skin. So mine is going back in the post today. Luckily got it on a $9.99 trial so will only lose about $16 (NZ) by the time I have sent it back. Should not have believed the ads because all of e women were all ready smooth when they were demonstrating it. So back to my epilater, buffing pad and a couple of paracetamol pre hair removal!!

  20. Stop wasting time shaving......start Laser hair removal and be hair-free in no time

  21. This is very important website blog post, I suggest Nair its hair removal cream that you can get for sensitive skin as well as normal. They are easily accessable and cheap too. Poundworld, Poundland sell them for well obviously a pound. They keep the hair back as well, whereas shaving serves it purpose but it only cuts the hair. whereas hair removal pulls the hair out of its roots.Thanks for sharing the useful information.
